Scrap Fx inspiration, #2


and welcome to my second blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia.

I created this time a scrapbook layout in mixed media style with a photo of my daughter Mia years ago.

Therefore I used the beautiful stencil: 

Words of Wisdom stencil

one of my favorite stamps:

transparency as embellishments:
and the decorative chipboard:
Here is the link to the store from Scrap Fx: http://www.scrapfx.com.au/store/

Art is anything...

a closer look:

For this page I used the color combination orange, pink and blue with black and white.

What I love about the transparency from Scrap Fx: they are perfect as embellishments

and finishing touch.

Chipboards are a beautiful way to add 3D effects on the page.

I always paint my chiĆ¼board with black gesso first before I add my main color or 

embossing powder. The black paint/ gesso gives more depth and enhances the 3D effect.

For my background paper I used the new paper collection  of 13@rts.

I hope you feel a little bit inspired to create with the beautiful products of Scrap Fx.

Have a beautiful day.

Singel design team blog post September 2020 for 13arts

 Hello 13@rts fans,

you know already the new paper collection from 13@rts is now worldwide available.

I have chosen for my inspiration the wonderful "Sunrise" paper collection and a photo

from my beautiful husband.

The photo is a little bit overexposed because I took it with the mobile phone.

But anyway...

I choose for my title one of the cardstock words from 13@rts which I colored

with pastel grey spray.


He is my Mr. Right, even after so many years he can turn my world upside down.

I still have butterflies when I see him and I wish nothing more than to have time

on this earth with him for as long as possible.

a closer look...

I used for my background the beautiful butterfly stencil. 
First I mixed gel medium with color glow and I added this mix to the stencil.
I sprinkled embossing powder on the wet mixture. After that I melted the embossing powder with the heat tool.
Then I added multipurpose medium with the brush insite the wings from the butterfly stencil image.
After that I sprinkled light blue colored grit in the wet paste. I let the whole thing dry overnight.
The next day I added glitter ink, gold mist and another color glow color to my stencil image.
I really love the texture. I repeated the steps with the little butterfly stencil image on my background.

I used from 13@rts:

Paper set 12 x 12 inch: SUNRISE

Paper 6x6 inch: Paper-pad-6x6-SUNRISE

Paper A6: /Paper-pad-A6-SUNRISE

Paper sheet: Papier-At-dawn-SUNRISE/

Paper sheet fuzzy cuting: /Papier-Daylight-SUNRISE

More than words September Main challenge

 Hello everyone 

and welcome to our new September main challenge on the blog from More than words.

Here is the link: 


My inspiration for you is a layout created on 13@rts paper where I glued a "BOOK PAPER" collage. My book pages come from a book that belonged to my mother. I also put book pages behind the photo of my mother. BOOKS did not play a major role in my parent's world, in contrast to myself... I read one or two books a week. I recently became the proud owner of an e-book reader. I am interested in many genres: crime stories, fantasy, women or historical novels. I am currently reading the series of the seven sisters of Lucianda Riley. When I read a book I need silence and then I dive into the world of the book. I don`t hear anything anymore. Often it happens that my husband has to call me several times before I notice that he has spoken to me... Yeah I am a real "book-worm".

Here are our amazing sponsors for the September challenge.

Can`t wait to see your entry.

Have a beautiful day.
